The IDB Group Country Strategy for the period 2017-2021 will seek to contribute to higher, inclusive and more sustainable growth that supports a reduction in poverty and inequalities. The Strategy has three strategic priorities that will guide sovereign and non-sovereign guaranteed operations in Haiti: 

(i)  improve the business climate to enhance productivity;

(ii) render key public services more accessible to enhance human development; and

(iii) strengthen government capacity to increase fiscal sustainability. Bank support will incorporate cross-cutting themes that are key to Haiti’s overall stability and poverty reduction, particularly climate change resilience, protection of the environment, and gender equality.

Strategy and Projects

Haiti is one of the founding member countries of the IDB. Like all the shareholders, Haiti appoints a Governor, who represents the country on the Board of Governors.

For day-to-day business at the Bank's Headquarters in Washington, D.C., Haiti is represented by a chair on the Board of Executive Directors. The chair, shared with Argentina, is headed by an Executive Director, who is elected to a three-year term by the Governors of Haiti and Argentina.

Country strategies remain valid for one year beyond the stated period, as they remain active throughout the preparation of the following strategy.
